COMM 230 2/2/10 Narrative paradigm is a way in which we tell arguments Factors that effect the narrative paradigm -certain biases or intentions that we are trying to convey intentionally or unintentionally -error in recalling parts of the story -credibility of the presenter -lack of truth in what is being said Ways in evaluating the accuracy in the narrative paradigm according to Walter Fisher -narrative probability: the process by which we evaluate the story depending on internal factors to determine the accuracy of it -whether the story itself can stand on its own -is the story even believable in the 1 st place? -narrative fidelity: process by which we establish the credibility of a story based on external factors -we use what we already know about the specific context to establish whether the story is believable -evaluating the narrative based on past narratives When not to engage in an argumentation -when one does not have knowledge about the subject -depending on the person, example your boss or law enforcement officials -there is no real issue to discuss -may not find the actual topic controversial enough to engage in an exchange 2/4/10 In an argument, there are a set of claims you need to evaluate to determine if it is effective 4 elements of stock issues 1. Ill/Harms: the statement of the flaw that exists in the status quo 2. Blame/Inherency: the thing preventing the ills from being solved in the status quo -structural inherency: a structure in place that is preventing the ill from being solved—instrumental element preventing the ill -attitudinal inherency: an attitude held that prevents the ill from being solved 3. Cure: the remedy to the ill 4. Cost: what the advantages and disadvantages may be Fallacies Red herring: an irrelevant topic is brought to light to divert attention

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
